New Model: Sunseeker 155 Yacht

A new flagship even if extending length by a foot is always big news for any boat builder. Sunseeker's new 155 Yacht extends the British builder not by a couple of feet but by an important 25 feet in length. But the most important note in this new big girl of the Sunseeker family is that unlike it's smaller sisters it is build of aluminium, features a semi displacement round bilge hull shape, and that customization is take to another level thanks to a modular type build. Commissioned by long time Sunseeker fan, Formula One famous Eddie Jordan, he launched a few flagships for them in his past, the new Poole largest build will accommodate twelve guest in three separate cabins in its first hull. Still Sunseeker say that the 155 Yacht incorporates a very modular type build which can make for any possible variations of the 155 Yachts not only the interior layout but also the exteriors, going into each owner personal taste. Power is twin MTU 2940hp which gives a max speeds of 22 knots, and a range of 4000 nautical miles at an economic cruise speed.  Full commissioning for 155 Yacht hull one will be carried out in coming Spring.
